Board of Trustees

Board of Trustees seeks Associate Members!

Do you love the Library and everything it stands for? Would you like to part of a team that helps to plan and frame the future of our Chelmsford Public Library?
Well, you’re in luck!
What would you do on the Associate Board? You give feedback to the Library Board of Trustees on library operations, work as part of the strategic planning team, help with big functions and maybe even facilitate fundraising. You would get an insider’s view of how the library works, be a part of our mission to reflect the values of our community, and make great friends along the way. It’s a terrific way to give back to the people of Chelmsford and to try a Trustee position on for size, without committing to a three-year term. Associate Board members work alongside the Trustees, but do not participate in Board votes. You also don’t have to put out yard signs or go through the election process!
If you’re interested, we would love to hear from you! Please contact the Trustee Chair, Adam Schertzer, at Board meetings take place on the second Wednesday of every month and are open to the public.

About the Trustees

The Board of Library Trustees consists of seven community members elected for three years, in staggered terms. Trustees ensure that the Library supports the needs of our community and reflects the community’s values. The Trustees are authorized to set policies for the library. The Board of Library Trustees meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. (see upcoming meeting calendar).
